> I know this is OT but I highly respect the opinions of people in this
> group.  I am probably moving my dedicated server to a new provider
> soon and I have a few choices for OS.  My current dedicated server
> is on FreeBSD 4.10-STABLE and my Intranet box is on Debian Linux.
> Both have been stable and I am comfortable in either environment.
> I run strictly server software (apache, php, postgresql, mysql, qmail,
> etc.) and no desktop stuff.
> Of my choices below, what would you recommend that'll be suitable
> for the next 12-24 months.  Out of the list below, I am really only
> familiar with FreeBSD 4.10, so comments/suggestions about the others
> would be greatly welcome.
> Cent-OS (Redhat compatible Linux I think)
> Fedora Core Release 1
> Fedora Core Release 2
> FreeBSD 4.10
> FreeBSD 5.2.1
> FreeBSD 5.3
> Thanks!!!

> PS: Hopefully by the time I need a new machine I'll be able to run
> DragonflyBSD in production.
